Guns and Ammunition Safety at Home

To have guns or not to have guns? For many people, that is the question. It's an important one, especially if you have children in the home. Experts say that a child as young as 3 years old can pull the trigger of a gun, so it's natural to feel very apprehensive about having firearms in your house. If you choose to have Newton guns and ammunition in your home, and there are many reasons you may choose to do so, you've got to take these simple tips into consideration. From always keeping your guns locked and out of reach of children to teaching your kids how to leave guns alone if they encounter them, these life-saving tips can bring you peace of mind and keep you and your loved ones safe. Here is what you need to know.

Lock the Firearms Away

No matter how smart your children are, it's vital that you lock your firearms away and out of sight and reach. Most new guns on the market come with security measures that make it impossible to shoot them without disengaging the safety mechanism. From a thick cable that fits into the barrel of the gun to a device that covers the trigger, these mechanisms are important in keeping children from being able to fire a gun. However, you shouldn't only rely on them. You can also buy locks for older guns that do not have this technology. You can even call your local police department or sheriff's department because many of these agencies will work with parents in helping them get cable-style gun locks. It's also important to note that children are good at finding things, even when parents think they've hidden an item well. Don't just hide your firearms under sweaters and pants on a shelf in your closet. Locking the guns away is the best form of security. You can purchase safes that provide the best form of protection. Many gun safes can hold one or multiple guns and they often come with a combination or a key lock. Some gun safes even have a touch pad that you can set to recognize your hand only. Experts also recommend locking up the often toxic materials that you use to clean your guns, as well.

When to Start

When it comes to gun safety, it's never too early to start. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, parents should start thinking about locking up their guns and hiding them out of sight as early as when babies crawl. For some babies, that is as early as 5 or 6 months old. Always make sure that when your children go to a friend's or relative's house that the guns there are properly and safely stored away, as well. When your child is old enough to talk and effectively communicate with you, then it's important to start talking about the importance of gun safety and what to do if your child ever finds a gun or has a friend that finds a gun. Teach your children the following steps:

• Always stop what you are doing and walk away from the gun or ammunition. • Don't touch it. • Immediately leave the area and find a responsible adult. • If your friend has a gun, alert an adult immediately. • If there is not an adult around and another kid has a gun, run away from the situation immediately.

Supervision with Guns

Newton guns and ammunition do not have to be scary, and when used correctly, they can be protective and fun to target shoot with. It's just important that you exercise caution, especially when storing guns in your home. Using caution and safety will keep both you and your loved ones safe.
